simpler code. It would also be simpler for the user to
order their list once rather than constantly examining the
conflict list to fix the preferences. You would still want
to look but the default choices would reflect your declared

If in the order of your example, Seinfeld over MASH, MASH
already lost then Rawhide over Seinfeld.
